Career Summary

Eva became interested in snooker approximately ten years ago when she first watched it on TV and subsequently became a regular spectator at tournaments televised on Eurosport

Having first visited a club and seen a snooker table for the first time, she decided to start playing American pool instead as the snooker table was far too large. After some time, she took up snooker as well and represented the Czech Republic as a player at European amateur events.


At that time, the Czech Republic also needed some referees and so Eva took the necessary examination in 2008 but officiated only at local tournaments.

She first refereed at main tour level in 2010 as Prague hosted a PTC tournament. After the tournament, Eva also began to officiate at European and World amateur events, before returning to main tour events in Sofia in 2012.

Eva cites the most memorable matches of her refereeing career so far as being the quarter-final match between Neil Robertson and Jimmy Robertson in Sofia in 2013, the quarter-final between Shaun Murphy and Stephen Maguire at the 2014 Gdynia Open and also the match between Ronnie O’Sullivan and Barry Hawkins at the 2014 Paul Hunter Classic.


Away from snooker, Eva has a degree in English and American Studies and works as a translator from English and French (most of the time I translate fiction). Eva also teaches English and Czech for foreigners at Charles University in Prague.


Eva is also a part-time commentator of snooker at Czech Eurosport and is interested in art, travelling, and loves good food and hiking.
